EFL: Joao gives Reading early lead over Stoke

It was a great spot and strike from Joe Lumley and a great run by Lucas Joao. But the keeper came so far out and then the defender has got to clear that.

It's a great start for Reading. At the start of the season they were conceding early goals but now they've scored in the first 90 seconds.

  • What a start for the hosts and it's a defensive disaster from Stoke.

    Reading keeper Joe Lumley kicks a long ball down the pitch and Stoke get caught in all kinds of bother. Jack Bonham comes off his line to collect it and gets stuck in no man's land, while Aiden Flint doesn't deal with Lucas Joao's run.
